SPx-cial Trade

It’s not uncommon for trades to contain a bunch of cards from the same sets. If you’re a team collector, it probably happens to you all the time. Heck, my upcoming trade bait is going to be set based, so I hope I’ll be sending out a lot of those packages to you.

I’d also […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 2

If you missed part one of the loot I received from Kyle at Nolan’s Dugout, then click on this link.

As a quick recap, I sent him some Topps online exclusive code giveaway die cuts, and he sent me stuff I could actually use. A lot of stuff. So much stuff that there will at […]

Digging Out From the Trade Backlog (Trade with Nolan’s Dugout) – Part 1

A while back (let’s say 2+ years ago, I think?) Kyle from Nolan’s Dugout contacted me about some Topps die cuts I had for trade. Those were the golden giveaway code redemption things you could only get online (unless you had a customer service issue and Topps sent you a ton of them as a […]

Back When People Read This Blog, They Traded With Me, Too

I hate the collateral damage my unpredictable work schedule causes. It makes sense that readership and engagement with the blog would be down significantly when you don’t post for 6 months at a time. I don’t care about blog stats, and I don’t look at them. The only reason I care about readers is so […]

Calling All Card Detectives – A 5X7 Mystery

Okay, so as the title mentions, I need a little help. I hope you’ll bear with me to the end (or at least skip there) to see if we can crack this case. I’m not the most knowledgeable collector by any means, but I’m resourceful enough to find most cards that are tough to identify.

Digital De-Cluttering – Greg Maddux Edition

Fall is upon us, and while the rodents are filing their cheeks getting ready for winter, I’m over here trying to get rid of some things. Hopefully soon this will translate into showing some trade bait on the blog, but for the time being I’m going to settle for cleaning up some of my collections […]

My Last Long Trade Package

If I’m going to make this blog work for my schedule and my stupidly obsessive scanning and digital cataloging process, I need to shorten the heck out of them. Part of my pending burn out was the internal pressure to show a whole trade in one post, no matter how large. I want to show […]

Are We Having Fun Yet? I Am!

Today’s trade post comes courtesy of Nolan’s Dugout. I made this trade with him over a year ago (as is going to be the case for most of the trades you’ll see), so I don’t really remember everything we’re going to see today. Kyle doesn’t blog very much, which is a shame because his posts […]

Double Birthday

There was a time when I could put together blog posts and offer up cards for trade on a semi-regular basis. I even briefly offered up weekly trade bait (which became less frequent). You can still find those posts over here, and many of those cards are still available – just ask. I really need […]

Still Undeserved

A little over a month ago, I posted the first part of a very large trade package I received from reader Nick M. It’s taken a while to find the drive to finish this post as work is picking up again, my house is still experiencing issues that need attention, and holiday stuff is starting […]
